Bingsoo (빙수)


I arrived to Daejeon towards the end of summer and as I strolled the streets I would see advertisements for this dessert. This dessert, 빙수 (pronounced: bingsoo), is a popular summer dessert in South Korea. Bingsoo translates to shaved ice and is usually topped with an assortment of fruits, red beans, nuts, and much more. When this dessert is ordered it is usually shared between two or more individuals. I, of course, had to try this dessert because of its popularity. The results…outstanding! Bingsoo taste similar to ice cream, but with a richer flavor. The consistency is like a mixture of ice cream and snow cones. As you can see, this bingsoo is a fruit bingso topped with an extremely dense and rich whipped cream. This dessert did not last long!
